Nope. Hasn't changed. Screw the whip screw until it just touches and lock it down. YMMV...

As for the heel solution, the tape I used eventually compressed and I had to keep adding layers and they'd keep compressing and working their way out the side. My final, and permanent solution was to bed the heel only with JB weld.

Total time to bed was about an hour. I let it set for 6 hours and broke the action loose and trimmed the excess with an X-Acto knife while it was still somewhat soft. It's very discreet and you don't notice it unless you're looking for it. It's muck harder now that it has had time to cure.

I have high hopes for my next range trip. If you look closely at the right side bedding toward the front of the stock you can see lower half of the number 2 molded into it. it looks like a carrot tip. That number 2 stamp was under my receiver.
